A ceiling fan may seem simple enough to install yourself, but it’s best to leave electrical work up to the professionals. The following are reasons ceiling fans should be installed by a professional.
Trying to install a ceiling fan on your own can take more time than you think. Since you lack the training and experience, the process could take hours or days and lead to many trials and errors. You may never get it installed. Go the safe route, hire the electrician to provide you with the peace of mind that they did the job correctly and efficiently.
Ensures Correct Installation
You want to install the ceiling fan properly the first time. Every fan requires the correct kind of ceiling box. If you don’t use the right one, you can end up with a loose installation, leading to a fan with shaky blades. The fan could end up falling and damaging your ceiling, furniture, and flooring, or worse—you and your family. So trust Clinton Electric with your home fan installation throughout Baltimore, MD, and the surrounding areas. We ensure a proper and timely job.
Saves You Money
Putting in a ceiling fan alone can end up costing you lots of money because of faulty wiring. You also need to factor in the costs of renting or purchasing tools required for the installation. If you hire an electrician, they’ll have all the tools necessary.
Allows You To Stay Safe
Ensuring your safety is arguably the most significant reason ceiling fans should be installed by a professional. Dealing with electrical wiring without proper knowledge and skills can be a disaster waiting to happen. Not only could you severely injure yourself, but you could also damage your home’s electricity. That could lead the other outlets and fixtures in your house to stop working. The professionals know the safety precautions needed to get the job done safely and won’t leave you sitting in the dark.
Grants You a Warranty
In most cases, when you hire a professional electrician, they’ll provide a warranty for their services. This warranty will cover repairs you may need in the future in case you have issues with the electrical work or the fan. You may also get a warranty on the fan itself.
